A Travelodge customer has shared on social media their disgusting find in the hotel corridor, a “festering” human poo that made for a horrific discovery.
The hotel visitors claim that before they discovered the “festering” poo they were having a lovely visit in Edinburgh at the city-centre venue. It wasn’t until the early hours of Saturday morning that the horrific discovery was made.
The visitors at the hotel posted pictures of faeces to social media, where the punter also claimed that the human waste had been left to fester on the first-floor corridor for over an hour – despite the fact it had been reported to reception.
The Travelodge customer wrote in the post: “Hey @TravelodgeUK been a nice time here in Edinburgh Waterloo Pl until we came back to a s**t in the corridor.
“Reported it to poor guy on reception, still there an hour later. Hope he’s waiting on hazmat.”
They then added: “I was being kind but I just checked, it’s still there.
“That’s well over an hour of festering s**t on Floor 1, Waterloo Place, Edinburgh Travelodge.”
In response, the hotel has said they “sincerely apologise” for the poo which left in the hotel corridor and made a great emphasis on how hygiene is taken “very seriously.”
They went on to add that excrement had been removed from the corridor to be disposed of and since then the corridor has had a deep and thorough clean.
A Travelodge spokesperson said: “We take hygiene and cleanliness of our hotels very seriously.”
They continued: “Unfortunately a customer encountered an accident on the way to his room.
“Our hotel cleaner cleaned up the area immediately and followed it up with a thoroughly deep clean in the morning.
“We would like to sincerely apologise to any customers who were affected by this isolated incident.”
